The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201006-09
(sudo: Privilege escalation)
The command matching functionality does not properly handle when a file
in the current working directory has the same name as a pseudo-command
in the sudoers file and the PATH contains an entry for '.'.
A local attacker with the permission to run sudoedit could, under
certain circumstances, execute arbitrary commands as whichever user he
has permission to run sudoedit as, typically root.
There is no known workaround at this time.
